It was one of the best experiences of my holidays in Morocco. I was picked up at the hotel by Khalid. We went to the local market, where we bought all the ingredients for the meal. With a taxi we went to his home where Aziz a professional cook waited for us. We prepared a rich meal with a starter... More

I was collected from my hotel by Khalid and then taken through the local market to select some local produce. Both Khalid and the Chef Aziz were lovely. I had a great time learning to cook a traditional Moroccan Tagine, and enjoyed a 3-course meal including starter and dessert. I would recommend this experience which is done in a local... More

Upon arrival in Essaouira we thought we would give it one last try and telephone them. We were delighted when they said that we could do the market visit and class the next day and I communicated...

What a unique opportunity to experience a hands-on Moroccan cooking class in a local Essaouira home. Fatima is warm and inviting, genuinely happy to have you as her guest as you learn to make tagine!

Ich hatte total viel Spass zu sehen und lernen wie man eine marokkanische Tagine kocht. Wir wurden von unserem Hotel abgeholt und zu einem lokalen Markt gebracht wo wir alle Zutaten gekauft haben und nebenbei sogar noch die Kunst des marokkanischen handelns gelernt haben um dann die beste Tagine meines Lebens zu kochen. Anschliessend haben wir in Fatimas Kueche gezeigt... More

My friend and I were interested in taking this class in Essaouira because it offered an intimate look inside Moroccan culture and cuisine. Little did we know, it would become so much more than a cooking class and the highlight of our trip. We not only learned to cook an amazing and fresh fish tagine, we had meaningful interactions with... More
